The Parent Child Center of Tulsa is pleased to participate in the Oklahoma State Department of Health’s Blue Ribbon Tree for Kids initiative.
April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. For the ninth year, communities are encouraged to step up for children – communities can get involved by simply “Building a Blue Ribbon Tree for Kids” and displaying the trees during the month of April. The blue ribbon is the international sign for child abuse prevention and serves as a constant reminder that all of us have a responsibility in helping to protect children.
Where do I participate? Anywhere in Oklahoma
When do I participate? It is recommended that “Ribbon-ed Trees” be on display before April begins or at any time during the month of April. We urge everyone to take advantage of getting your tree in the official Tree Registry by sending in the registration form (next page) and no more than two photographs. Tree photos received by the deadline will be featured during a slideshow at the 24th Annual Oklahoma Child Abuse and Neglect Conference (hosted by the Center on Child Abuse and Neglect) as well as a variety of other various ways including the official 2017 CAP Month Scrapbook. Deadline for submission to be featured at the conference is Wednesday, April 5, 2017.
